• Financing your L&C Education

    The Financial Aid office is open Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to noon with limited staffing. All staff will continue to work remotely during normal business hours when not present in the office. Students need to check their L&C email and their Financial Aid Self Service page regularly. The Financial Aid office is processing aid and reaching out to students. 

    Depending on your academic and financial status, you might be able to get monetary help to attend college through scholarships, grants and/or loans.

    Need Financial Assistance?

    1. Apply for admission to Lewis and Clark.
    2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), using the school code for Lewis and Clark, 010020. Hint: The best time to fill out the FAFSA is as soon as possible after Oct. 1 for the following academic year.
    3. Look for a Student Aid Report (SAR) to be sent to your email account or mailed to your home address.
    4. If no further information is needed, L&C's Financial Aid Office will calculate your estimated award package, and you will receive an award letter in the mail.
    5. Accept your awards via Self-Service Financial Aid Awards. Note: You must be enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program, and you must be enrolled in classes required for that program to receive financial aid.
